Notes:

I have lived on this 5 acre property since 2005 and this year I find this new grass popping up in little clumps around the edges of my driveway and even in my driveway in front of the garage doors. It grows very slowly, stays green in freezing weather and looks very attractive. If this is indeed grass, I would love to propagate it. What is it?

    You’re welcome! Appreciate for the confirmed ID. Yes, the perennial would have been nice.

    Thank you for this information. I believe you nailed it. I really hope that it is the perennial variety. Looks as if it never needs mowing in a pasture.

    Thank you for the follow up photo. To my eyes the flowers look like a species in the Poa, possible the annual bluegrass (Poa annua)? Check it out and see if you have a match.Copy & paste the included below for image of P. annua with flowers.
    The second included link also has image of the ligule. Best wishes!
